Ridin' on the Night Train

from by Radoslav Lorkovic



I found myself a bit stressed out studying law in the south of France in 1988. It could happen!! I was having some dizziness and thought I'd visit my doctor friend in Geneva over the weekend. I swear!! I was stressin! I wrote the song on the back of a SNCF ticket.


Hitched a ride to Chicago
got on board a big airplane
put my things upon the counter
left my baby in the rain
by the time I crossed the ocean
wasn't sure just why I came
these towns they look a little different
I still feel about the same


I'm ridin on the night train
headed for the station
got my ticket in my pocket
headed for some destination
not sure how I got here
I sure hope I make it back
but for now I'll keep on movin'
down this shiny railroad track

Took a seat back in the cabin
threw my things up on the rack
these people must be going somewhere
this train's still rollin' down the track
this guy he speaks a little english
I still speak a little french
by the time we cross the border
won't make no difference anyway



They might becoming from Morocco
they might be coming in from Spain
ridin' in the sunshine
darting through the rain
they're dreaming about Paris
they're thinking about the States
you know they've never been there
their friends all tell 'em it'll be great
